Lately it was revealed that Square Enix, the company who bought Eidos, has registered the name “Hitman: Absolution” as a trade mark. The assumption is that this is the official name for the next title in the stealth/action series, Hitman, assuming that Square Enix’s European chapter (as mentioned, Eidos) has not been working on several titles for the series simultaneously.

In addition, a new screenshot from the game has been released, revealing to us that Agent 47 will once again take the leading role in the game. Apart from this there is no information about the game (apart from rumors that Rocksteady Studios, who were the developers for Batman: Arkham Asylum, are behind this title too).

We expect to receive information about Hitman 5, or Hitman: Absolution in this year’s E3.
